has stressed that the role of the u.s. military would be limited in time and scope. our mission has been to use america's unique capabilities to create the conditions for the no-fly zone and to assist in meeting urgent humanitarian needs. as expected, we're already seeing a significant reduction in the number of u.s. planes involved in our operations as the number planes from other countries increase in numbers. today we are taking the next step. we have agreed, along with our nato allies, to transition command and control for the no-fly zone over libya to nato. all 28 allies have also now authorized military authorities to develop an operations plan for nato to take on the broader civilian protection mission under resolution 1973. nato is well-suited to coordinate this international effort and ensuring that all participating nations are working effectively together toward our shared goals. this coalition includes countries beyond nato including arab partners, and we expect all of them to be providing important political guidance going forward. we have always said that arab leer lea

's talk about that also with retired u.s. army general george jalwan, the nato allied supreme commander. if in fact this is true that the president in recent days, maybe the past week or two, signed a covert action order, a finding, as they call it, to secretly assist the rebels who are fighting gadhafi's forces, what does that say to you? >> first of all, i have no knowledge of whether he signed a finding or not. it may be one of two things, may be an actual sort of action or it could be keep pressure on gadhafi to really feel the heat that he's feeling now with the resignation of his foreign minister and also with what i think is what is happening in london where the international community is very much united in what needs to be done. >> for all practical purposes the coalition, now nato control, they -- they have taken aside in this civil war, they want to help the rebels and see gadhafi go, even though the u.n. security council resolution didn't go that far as we all know. here's the question. if in fact the president signed a secret finding that goes way beyond what the coalition

nato command and control when it's handed over in the coming days from the u.s. command and from general carter ham. it will go to nato commander and control. that agreement has been released and we should hear from secretary of state hillary clinton in moments about the structure but we can confirm that nato will take command of the libyan operation. >> thank you. desperately in need of fresh recruit but short on time, the libyan rebels are getting a crash course in weapons training. senior correspondent rick leventhal has that story. >> this used to be a military training academy for gaddafi's army. now it serves the revolution. the instructors are former soldiers including special forces. teaching benghazi civilians how to fight. >> i am a computer engineer. until the government of gaddafi started using weapons against us. >> the trainees include shop owners to risk their live for secure libya. >> this is the first time i touched this. >> a salesman becoming a soldier and says he is not afraid. >> when we finish, let's go to libya. >> [ inaudible ] >> really, really, really. a

by gadhafi's forces. in an interview this morning, u.s. joint chiefs chairman mike mull ensays the coalition attacks have effectively stopped that assault. and our candy crowley is talking to him on "state of the union" in an hour here on cnn. you'll be able to catch that. also a short time ago, we heard from libyan leader himself, gadhafi, who had plenty to say about the coalition strikes. >> translator: if the men were to be killed, the women will take over. we will hold the green flag high. they must know today that it is a confrontation between the libyan people and america, france, and britain. and the christian pact. all the libyans women and women are ready today to be leaders. but we will be victorious. you will be defeated. >> he also said the aggressors would never lay a hand on his land or soul. this was an audio message. it is tough to independently confirm even if we do believe it's him. we didn't see him this time. >> no, we didn't. we'll be looking at that in the hours ahead. colonel gadhafi, that gee fins we heard in the face of overnight coalition strikes and activity which

and will be the idea that they will do close air support for the rebels around the benghazi area. >> some u.s. military spokesmen and officers are saying significant process has already been made. potentially there is a no-fly zone already created. that is music to the ears of europeans, particularly those who have come to this party somewhat differently. >> we have heard about greece coming far, and offering bases to be used. some have been reluctant this came up very quickly. president sarkozy moved quickly after the summit meeting yesterday and as a consequence, i think people didn't really have a chance to formulate policy. i know that in one case, in denmark, waiting for parliamentary debate before they would commit to using any forces. it's taken diplomats and politicians a bit by surprise. they are certainly moving far more quickly than they have on a lot of things, richard. >> jim, briefly. a difficult question for a brief answer. who is in the lead here? >> that's a very good question. one of the things we don't know yet, richard, is exactly where the command and control center for all of this
evening. i'm bret baier. pentagon officials say so far the u.s. spent $580 million on the libyan conflict. while we're committed to the operation financially, militarily and diplomatically, questions remain about what it will mean to deem the mission a success. james rosen is at the state department. good evening. >> reporter: good evening. president obama and top commanderrers pushed forward on the parallel and separate path to strip muammar gaddafi of his ability to wage war and pressuring him to resign. today a top nato commander said the missions may connect over time in london, secretary of state hillary clinton met with colleagues from the united nations, europe and arab league to sketch out end game in libya. clinton said arming the libyan rebels were not discussed and only vaguely did she address growing speculation that gaddafi will receive asylum. >> we believe he must go. we're working with the international community to try to achieve that outcome. and look for political resolution which could include leaving the country. >> bret: we are not engaged and look for him to go does
. >> president obama defends our attacks on libya, saying even though the u.s. wasn't in imminent danger, our interest and values were at stake. but the attacks stopped short, he says, of trying to force muammar gaddafi out. >> if we tried to overthrow gaddafi by force, our coalition would splinter. we would likely have to put u.s. troops on the ground. >> not an option, the president said. instead, secretary of state hillary clinton is in london today, meeting with countries who want to see a new government in libya. their aim -- pressure gaddafi to step down on his own. >> we tied up his financial assets, the $33 billion. we've got an embargo. he is getting weaker all of the time. >> capitol hill critics still say the president should have consulted congress first. >> we've got to be careful about slipping into these wars. tomorrow, nato takes over. the u.s. takes a back seat. and libya takes center stage as the world's latest front in the fight for freedom. what about other countries like yemen behind syria that are facing similar uprisings? what is our policy there? the president said wh
, we would likely have to put u.s. troops on the ground to accomplish that mission. to be blunt, we went down that road in iraq, that is not something we can afford to repeat in libya. >> so rebels may be short of what they expected from the u.s. >> the timing of this speech has reinforced the sentiment transition in the military campaign of the americans pulling back their support role and nato taking command. and britain and france taking the initiative. >> and so it's destination london for hillary clinton, one of four highly powerful delegates to consider how all this might end and what sort of libya will emerge. steve kingston, "bbc news," washington. >> well, the one city still in rebel hands is misrata. and the pro gaddafi forces have been surrounding that city for days, bombarding it, and the humanitarian situation in misrata for some time has been described as dire. shortages of food and water and dozens of civilians being killed and hundreds being injured there. our world affairs john simpson reporting from libya was taken outside misrata to see what's going on there. here
, the dangers of u.s. military involvement, while already fighting two other wars, and the precedent this may set in other nations. and the fact that this may not go quite as the u.s. and nato have planned. notably, as you're about to hear, the president left open the possibility of arming the rebels who are in the fight against gadhafi in libya. and here now a portion of our conversation with the president at this time of high stakes overseas. the moment your speech ended last night, the associated press put out an item that read, president obama's speech was about defending the first war launched on his watch. how does it end? >> well, first of all, i think it's important to note that we've had two wars on my watch. one which we've wound down and we do not have combat operations in iraq any more. afghanistan, obviously, is still a tough fight. and that weighs heavily on me in making these decisions. but what was clear to me was we had a unique circumstance to save a lot of lives in this libyan situation. and that we had an international mandate to do it, and an international coalition that
to announce. it is very clear that the u.s., france and other western powers don't want to create the perception globally that this is strictly a western action general the arab nation. arab partners are involved. is that role a symbolic role or a more active role where you have jet fighters deployed? of course, it was the arab nations one week ago today that voted to support a no-fly zone over libya. the arab league calling for the u.n. security council to push ahead of the no-fly zone. today here in cairo, we caught up with the leader who voted in the nationwide referendum. the arab league supports the no-fly zone, but he emphasized this is not to be a military action or invasion. no one is talking about invading libya. certainly when you look at countries like france and listen to statements by french president nicolas sarkozy, the rhetoric is different. he suggests attacking targets on the ground. when you look at how the resolution is written up, it leads the possibility of attacks and targets on the ground open. it will be interesting to see how arab nations will react if th
